Tweeter question

Found the quote below in Sreeophile talking about the B&W Nautilus 801 which is not my speaker (P4) but must be a similar concept.

"The 1" metal-dome tweeter employed a "phase ring" to optimize the unit's dispersion. However, many listeners blamed this ring for reducing the speaker's sense of openness"

Descriptive words are so easy to misinterpret. Openness seems to be the opposite of directive. On the other hand I don't associate openness as having anything directly to do with directivity. So I wouldn't see this review as informative.
